LeBron James of the Los Angeles Lakers tweeted in support of Philadelphia quarterback Jalen Hurts as the Eagles dominated the New York Giants in the divisional playoff game at the Lincoln Financial Field on Saturday. 

“Yeah like they were saying. Anybody would look great at QB for the Eagles.. yeah ooook. HATERS MAN!! Jalen Hurts is SPECIAL. 🤡’s” the NBA star said in a tweet. 

Hurts has proven to be more than just a system quarterback, and as the quarterback continues his close-to-perfection first half of action against the Giants, he received the attention of the NBA’s biggest star. He missed the previous two games with a sprained throwing shoulder suffered at the Chicago Bears on December 18.
